1955 Episode of ''The Jimmy Durante Show'' - With Guest Johnnie Ray
A bizarre episode of "The Jimmy Durante Show" from 1955, featuring several special guests including Johnnie Ray. This rather questionable episode also includes the original unintentionally hilarious commercials for Texaco. Please forgive the slight cut-off during the ending of the show.

Jimmy Durante: A Great Entertainer
This half hour program was filmed before an audience seated at tables in Las Vegas, NV 59 years ago. Jimmy Durante at the time had rapid fire delivery. The guests on his show were some of the headliners or had been headliners a few years before 1955. I had the opportunity of being in the audience at Magic Mountain in 1971 when Jimmy Durante gave a great show. This present 1955 show may not appeal to many people, but should if they are Durante fans.
